My research focuses on the private sector role in public functions, how industry and organizational structure affect performance, and how information asymmetry and uncertainty affect institutional design and effectiveness. These interests have led to research on the performance of public and private institutional arrangements, including private provision of public services, state budgetary processes, tort liability laws, licensing boards and regulatory outcomes, and hospital industry structure and performance. Current research focuses on public-private partnerships and networks, and on community-based philanthropic organizations.
